Twist and Pout Marathon

6 06 2009

Today and tomorrow, SOAPNet is airing what they call a “Twist and Pout Marathon” of The O.C., Beverly Hills 90210 and One Tree Hill.

All the episodes being featured have something to do with dancing.

The “special programming” airs from 8am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday (different episodes each day), the timeslot when our teen dramas are normally shown anyway.
